I am a furniture maker who studied architecture and works between design and making. After my studies I worked onsite for a few years, helping to design and make delightful hand-crafted wooden buildings by architects Richard Leplastrier and Craig Burton.
I moved to California in 2016 to fulfill a long-held dream to develop my woodworking skills, attending the fine furniture program at The College of the Redwoods (now The Krenov School). I was part of the Making a Seat at the Table exhibition in Philadelphia (2019) where I first became aware of the wonderful breadth of female-led making practices.
I returned to Australia in 2020 after working for a Californian architecture firm Arkin Tilt and am currently establishing a practice that bridges furniture making and architecture. I enjoy working closely with material and between scales; from small hard carved pieces through to the design of spaces.
